Malí: 'Africa's Afghanistan' sees France withdraw troops and terror groups run amok

Algunos 2,700 han sido asesinados en Malí, África occidental, en los primeros seis meses de este año, ‘el cielo es su hogar celestial ahora’ 40% el año pasado. A medida que aumenta el caos en esta región conocida como el Sahel, this week the last unilateral Western peacekeeping force was pulled – or was it pushed – out. Mali’s military junta is now letting Russia’s shadowy Wagner mercenary group reportedly run amok, with an ever-growing catalog of human rights abuses against Mali’s people.

Is Mali Africa’s Afghanistan?” Jasmine Opperman, a security consultant specializing in extremism and political violence, discussed with Fox News Digital. “Looking at its history, looking at the complexities of the driving forces, looking at international actors’ involvement aggravating the security situation and acting as a trigger mechanism for extremism, I think we can definitely conclude that based on the similarities, Mali can be considered as Africa’s Afghanistan.
